    Just watched the first episode and really enjoyed it
    I'd recommended reading nothing about it as there's a shocker after 15 mins

    Yeah that scene was great. Haven't watched the second one yet, but the first episode was excellent.

    Im really really enjoying this show. Love the twists and turns. The bit in the first episode where
    Cora first met her baby sister
    was very freaky. It gave me a proper fright :D

    Who playing Bill Pullman's wife I just can't get her name off the tip of my tongue and she is not listed on IMDB.

    I know you mean well and everything but saying something shocking happens after 15 mind is as bad as any spoiler .

    That last scene of episode 3 really was a hook to bring you back next week.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,604 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Really enjoying this and they are doing a good job with the mystery and letting it out slowly week by week.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,604 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Another strong episode.

    A great mystery great acting and they know how to end an episode to bring you back the following week.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,604 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Really impressed with this series between it and Mr Mercedes there is some fine story telling and acting going on.


    Bill Pullman is giving Gleeson a run for his money on who is giving the best male performance.


    This show has the end of episode cliffhanger nailed.


  • Administrators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 54,407 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Mr E


    I'm a few behind (it's one I watch with my girlfriend) but it's a cracker of a series.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,990 longshanks


    Jesus, that latest episode was a bit rough.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,604 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    It really was.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,433 ✭✭✭ Rfrip


    Found that incredibly hard to watch. Almost turned it off tbh. Relieved there's only one episode left

    Jessica biel is so good in this

    Interested to hear positive reviews of this..

    .. loved the first episode but didn't think much of the second.

    Has it gone off the wall entirely or is it staying relatively grounded and believable?

    I think Jessica Biel has been great in this, I'd read a few reviews where it was all praise for Bill Pullman but she's been better than him in my opinion.

    The "family relations" are popping up in both The Sinner and Mr Mercedes.

    Was enjoying the series a lot.

    But last night was a bit much. Didn't sleep great after it...

    Same!

    Hasn't been officially renewed but executive producer and star Jessica Biel has been talking today ahead of tonight finale where they might go in a second season.

    It been a huge ratings winner so I would expect it to be renewed.


    It was designed to be a beginning middle and end story told over 8 episodes so not sure where they would go with a second season.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,604 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    That was a fabulous series with really strong performances from Pullman and Biel with a story that has a beginning middle and a real ending.


    I kind of hope they leave it at that and don't ruin it by forcing a second season because of ratings.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,433 ✭✭✭ Rfrip


    Such a satisfying ending
    Really hope they don't do a season two.
    Great show... Pullman and biel were amazing

    Very much enjoyed this - great performances and I really hope they don't do a second season. If they do, as a Variety piece mentions, they could do it following Ambrose on another case with Cora in a reduced role. That could work.

    Half tempted to go to a beach now and see what reaction you'd get if you started hearing the lyrics:
    Giving me love
    All on your canvas
    All of the girls
    All on the mattress
    ..
    I've had the song going repeatedly around in my head.
